    The Barnes TSX 70gr loaded to 5.56NATO pressures (not .223) is supposed to be the shiznit, both for barriers as well as terminally.

    The SOST is also known as the Mk318, right? From what I've heard the Marines like it.

    I try to be diverse: part of my "rainy day" ammo stash---that I don't touch---is 200rds of the Silver State Armory 70gr TSX 5.56NATO, 200rds of Mk318/SOST, and 200rds of Mk262 (a mix of Mod 0 and Mod 1). :cool:

    I agree with most folks here---I wouldn't (and don't) use it for HD as a civilian with lots of ammo at my disposal but compared to M193 or 855 it seems to be a good choice for a lot of situations the military folks would find themselves in.

    The problem with your 45 comparison is that it doesn't take into account the fact that there is no 45ACP OTM. You simply can't be high-speed and low-drag without an OTM designation.

    FWIW, look for a 45 ACP round with an "OTM" designation in the near future. Get yourself some of that and some quadrail and your 45 will be a "good piece of kit".
